Chris Ciriello scored a hat-trick of penalty corners as Australia sealed a first place finish in Pool A thanks to victory over India on Day 8 of the FINTRO Hockey World League Semi-Finals in Antwerp.

Jamie Dwyer, Aran Zalewski and Kieran Govers were also on target for the Kookaburras to set up a quarter-final showdown with the team that finishes fourth in Pool B.

Legendary attacker Dwyer rolled back the years with a candidate for goal of the day, with the 36-year-old five times FIH Player of the Year starting and finishing brilliant attack with a blistering backhand volley into the roof of P.R. Sreejesh’s goal.

Birendra Lakra and Ramandeep Singh were on target for India, who finished second in Pool A and will play the 3rd placed team from Pool B in the quarter-finals.

Hat-trick hero Chris Ciriello said: “We spend 25 hours a week training and a lot of that time is spent flicking and doing set piece practice, and today I was lucky enough for a few of them to come off. We had quite a lot of opportunities so it was good to take some today, there is still a lot that we can improve on though.”
